Doctor = $30
Dentist = $67
1/4" sliver removed from my right tonsil = Priceless

- it was hidden in OB's granola...twigs and stems be damned, this wouldn't have happened if I was eating chocolate, there aren't sharp things in chocolate....

Well no...it was granola I made myself and I've no idea if it came from the almonds, the sesame seeds, the oats, the sunflower seeds or the wheat germ...some manufacturing fluke from a shell or stalk.

yikes!

splinters are bad enough in fingers, but in the mouth! i'm not sure i've ever heard of anyone having a mouth splinter.

Wow. Now I've heard everything.

I didn't understand this at first. So, you weren't asking a doctor to remove part of your tonsil?
